    Highly Recommended - a great book!

    This was just what I needed to fill in some gaps with my new Nook. It provided the answers I was looking for and gave me some great tips.

    Good

    Provides more than the basics you get when you buy a Nook. I bought the epub version and within a few minutes was able to make my Nook HD+ be more like I wanted it. Worth the money.

    To archive a book

    Touch the screen of the book you want to archive. It will say others things like content: at the end of it, it will say 'more'. Press that and in the middle of the page that says archive. Do you know how I can delete books that I bought? I can't figure out how.

    Think long and hard before buying.

    This book needs a Table of Contents, and more importantly, an Index. Ironically, the Nook version even gives a credit for the person who supposedly did the indexing. I have bought several of the Missing Manual books in the past and found them most helpful. I even tried to contact the publisher by email and snail mail with no response. A book of this nature is useless without an index. I would love to get my $$$ back!

    Good Complement to Nook User Guide

    This book goes into more depth than the user guide that came with my nook hd+ provided. I got clear step by steps using this book to creating profiles and deleting apps I didn't want.

    Easy to read manual.

    As the cover states...this is the manual that should have come with the Nook. Easy to read and explains everything. I wasted too much time trying to figure it all out...now I don't have to.
